Nothing Is 2 Hard 4 God

Jeremiah 32:17 - ‘Ah, Lord God! Behold, You have made the heavens & the earth by Your great power & outstretched arm. There is nothing too hard 4 You.

Our minds tend 2 see our problems as big or small. Even when we pray for the sick, we say things like, “You have a headache? No problem. Let’s pray for your healing.” But when it is cancer, we say, “Oh, let’s tell the senior pastor about it. It would be better if he prayed for u.” We think of headaches as small problems and cancers as big ones.

 But that is not the way God thinks. There is nothing too hard 4 Him who made the heavens & the earth! With God, there is no such thing as a “big” problem. In fact, the “bigger” the problem, the “easier” it is 4 Him! In the feeding of the 5,000, it took only five loaves 2 feed the multitude. (Matthew 14:15–21) But in the feeding of the smaller multitude of 4,000, it took seven loaves. (Matthew 15:32–38).

 In man’s scheme of things, it should take more loaves 2 feed more people. But this is not so with God. It took fewer loaves 2 feed more people. This is God’s way of telling us that the “bigger” the problem, the “easier” it is 4 Him. I am not saying that small problems are hard 4 God. But it is so encouraging 2 think that it is “easier” 4 God 2 heal cancers than headaches!

Imagine coming 2 God with a big problem. “So, what is your problem, son?” God asks. You say, “Father, it is a huge financial debt — not thousands but millions!” He says, “Easy. It is already cancelled.”

In another scenario, God asks, “So, what is your problem, son?” You say, “Father, I have lost my job & I can’t find a new one. I am already in my fifties & I don’t have the necessary qualifications.” He says, “No problem. Consider yourself employed. And in this new job, u won’t just have a job, you will have a position.”

Beloved, with God, it is never a problem bcoz there is nothing too hard 4 Him!

God's Promises 4 What 2 Do When..

=========  Often in life, we are faced with situations that are difficult. We do not know which way 2 turn, nor how 2 handle the decisions we must face. The best Source are from those who have faced what we now face. What did they do? And how did they get victory? Ecclessiastes has one of the most profound statements I have ever Joyfully discovered in the Bible. It is 4 us, This Generation of people from people we never knew 'our' past, but they give us the answers we also now seek.  Most are familiar with Eccles 3, That there is a SEASON 4 everything under Heaven...but lets look at this marvelous verse below..

Ecclesiastes 3:15 says, "Whatever Is, Has been Long Ago; AND, Whatever is  going 2b HAS been b4; It is GOD Who brings 2 pass AGAIN What Was in the Distant Past and Dissappeared.

What a helpful marvelous statement that is 2 read! It tells us that no matter what problem or trial we face today, SOMEONE in the Past faced the very thing. We do not need 2 re-invent the wheel coming up with a solution, the Answers are all Hidden, waiting 4 us 2 Search them out and receive our answer in making the right decisions we now face; Knowing also...that This To Shall Pass. Be encouraged today as u spend time w/Jesus, learning His ways and drinking the Living Water He offers u. Be encouraged today, no matter how busy u matter how matter how painful and upsetting your circumstances may be, go 2 Him and drink deeply from His Word. Let His Holy Spirit Refresh and Restore your weary soul. When u do, God's Word promises that out of your life will flow rivers of Living Water- pouring out on your loved ones and a needy world.

Lo, I AM with u always, even 2 the end of the age.  Matthew 28:20        Beautiful Shop

01. Deserted by Loved Ones - IF YOU'VE BEEN rejected or deserted by a friend or loved one, JESUS knows exactly how u feel. He had the same experience when His disciple Judas Iscariot betrayed Him, and His other disciples forsook Him and fled. Was this betrayal of Jesus a random event, outside the Father's loving control? Not at all. In fact, this experience was foretold in a Messianic psalm 100s of years earlier: "Even my own familiar friend in whom I trusted, who ate my bread, has lifted up his heel against Me" [Psalm 41:9].

This psalm continues with a wonderful word of Encouragement 4 all who have suffered abandonment or betrayal: "But You, O Lord, be merciful 2 me, and raise me up" [v.10]. No matter what kind of unfair treatment you've rec'd from a loved one, God's plan is 2b merciful 2 u and RAISE YOU UP!

When my father and my mother forsake me, then the Lord will take care of me.  Psalm 27:10

I have been young, and now am old; yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his descendants begging bread. He is ever merciful, and lends; and his descendants are blessed. Psalm 37:25-26

Whereas u have been forsaken and hated...I will make u an eternal excellence, a Joy of many generations.  Isaiah 60:15

The Lord will not cast off His people, nor will He forsake His inheritance.  Psalm 94:14

You shall no longer be termed Forsaken, nor shall your land any more be termed Desolate; but u shall be called Hephzibah, and your land Beulah; 4 the Lord delights in u, and your land shall be married.  Isaiah 62:4

The  Lord your God is a merciful God. He will not forsake u nor destroy u, nor forget the covenant of your fathers [Abraham, Isacc, and Jacob], which He swore 2 them.  Deuteronomy 4:31

You are God, ready 2 pardon, gracious and merciful, slow 2 anger, abundant in kindness, and did not forsake them.  Nehemiah 9:17

Can a woman forget her nursing child, and not have compassion on the son of her womb? Surely they may forget, yet I will not forget u.  See, I have inscribed u on the palms of My hands; Your walls are continually b4 ME.  Isaiah 49:15-16

Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes w/u. He will not leave u nor forsake u.  Deuteronomy 31:6

The Lord will not forsake His people, 4 His great name's sake, bcoz it has pleased the Lord 2 make u His people.  ISamual 12:22

It is better 2 trust in the Lord than 2 put confidence in man.  Psalm 118:8

Surely your Salvation is coming; behold, His reward is w/Him, and His work b4 Him. And they shall call them The Holy People, The Redeemed of the Lord; and u shall be called Sought Out, A City Not Forsaken.  Isaiah 62:11-12

Those who know Your Name will trust in You; 4 You, Lord, have not forsaken those who seek You.  Psalm 9:10

Prayer:  FATHER, Your Word says You are able 2 work all things together 4 good 2 those who love You. I call on You today 2 honor Your promises and work these painful circumstances 4 my good and 4 Your Glory.  Thank You, Lord, that nothing is outside of Your knowledge or control. In the midst of every difficult experience, You are able 2 fulfill Your purposes and lift me up!  Father, I forgive ALL those who have treated me unfairly, just as You have graciously forgiven me 4 the ways my actions have sometimes hurt You.  Thank You 4 opening my eyes 2 new hope 4 Restoration and Victory! In Jesus' Name. AMEN.

Love one another fervently w/a pure heart.  IPeter 1:22                                              Visit her beautiful butterflys

02.  Experiencing Marital Problems -  JESUS SAID He would build His Church on such a strong foundation that "the gates of hell" would not be able 2 prevail against it [Matthew 16:18], and He wants 2 build our marriages on that same kind of foundation- the foundation of His Word.  If your marriage is struggling today, it probably would be easy 2 find someone or something 2 blame. Perhaps there are financial problems..or infidelity..or substance abuse..or uncontrolled anger...or some other factor that has brought your relationship 2 a crisis point.  But Proverbs 24:3 makes an important statement about what it takes 2 have a strong marriage and family: "Through WISDOM a House is Built, and by understanding it is Established." In order 2 have a healthy marriage, we need God's Wisdom and Understanding! 

Wives, submit 2 your own husbands, as 2 the Lord. For the husband is head of the wife, as also Christ is Head of the Church; and He is the Saviour of the Body.  Therefore, just as the church is subject 2 Christ, so let the wives be 2 their own husbands in everything.

Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the Church and gave Himself 4 her, that He might sanctify and cleanse her w/the washing of water by the Word, that He might present her 2 Himself a glorious Church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be Holy and w/o blemish. So husbands ought  love their own wives as their own bodies; he who loves his wive loves himself...Let each one of u in particular so love his own wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects he husband. Ephesians 5:21-33

The Lord God said, "It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable  him." Genesis 2:18

A man shall leave his father and mother and be joined 2 his wife, and they shall become one flesh. Genesis 2:24

Let each man have his own wife, and let each woman have her own husband. Let the husband render 2 his wife the affection due her, and likewise also the wife 2 her husband. ICorinthians 7;2-3

Wives, likewise, be submissive 2 your own husbands, that even if some do not obey the Word, they, w/o a word, may be won by the conduct of their wives. Husbands, likewise, dwell w/them w/understanding, giving honor 2 the wife, as 2 the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life, that your prayers may NOT be hindered.  IPeter 3:1,7

All of u be of one mind, having compassion 4 one another; love as brothers, be tenderhearted, be courteous; not returning evil 4 evil or reviling 4 reviling, but on the contrary blessing, knowing that u were called 2 this, that u may inherit a blessing.  IPeter 3:8-9

Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from u, w/all malice. and be kind 2 one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave u.  Ephesians 4:31-32

LOVE suffers long and is kind; LOVE does not envy; LOVE does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the Truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. LOVE NEVER FAILS.  ICorinthians 13:4-8

Prayer:  FATHER, I acknowledge today that You are the One who created marriage, and You're the One who knows how 2 fix marriages when they're struggling. Forgive me 4 the ways I've failed 2 seek Your Wisdom and obey Your Instructions 4 my marraige. I acknowledge that my own ways have failed, and I need Your Help and Wisdom 2 bring Healing 2 my marriage. Today I re-commit myself  Your Lordship. I ask You 2 change my heart and re-kindle the love in my marriage. I look 2 You as the only reliable source 3 unselfish LOVE.  Show me Your ways, Lord, so my Home is built on a firm foundation. Thank You 4 giving me Hope today- the Hope that can onlly come from You. In Jesus' Name. AMEN.

My God shall supply all your need according 2 His Riches in glory by Christ Jesus.  Philippians 4:19

03. Financially Troubled - GOD HAS A PLAN 4 your finances. His heart is 2 bless His children, so they can be a blessing 2 others [Genesis 12:2]!  Your primary need today is 2 truly SEEK HIM, 4 His Word promises, "Those who seek the Lord shall not lack any good thing" [Psalm 34:10]. Whatever u need from Your Heavenly Father, He wants 2 give u--but u must ASK..Seek..Knock until your breakthrough comes [Matthew 7:7].

Dont sit back passively, hoping God's Provision will come. You must be aggressive and fight 4 it, crying out 2 Him until u receive the Provision u need.  Remember, If you're expecting a miracle financial Harvest from God, u must first trust Him by Sowing fnancial Seeds into His Kingdom [Luke 6:38]. If you're in need, --4 hoarding lead 2 poverty and lack.

Beloved, I pray that u may prosper in ALL things and be in Health, just as your soul prospers. 3John 2

I have been young, and now am old; yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his descendants begging bread. Psalm 37:25

"Bring ALL the Tithes into the Storehouse, that there may be food in MY House, and try ME now in this, " says the Lord of Hosts, "If I will not open 4 u the windows of Heaven and pour out 4 u such blessing that there will not be room enough 2 receive it. And, I will rebuke the devourer 4 your sakes." Malachi 3:10-11

All these blessings shall come upon u and overtake u, bcoz u obey the voice of the Lord your God...The Lord will grant u plenty of goods, in the fruit of your body, in the increase of your livestock, and in the produce of your groung, in the land of which the Lord swore 2 your fathers 2 give u.  The Lord will open 2 u His good treasure, the heavens, 2 give the rain 2 your land in its Season, and 2 bless all the work of your hand. You shall lend 2 many nations, but u shall not borrow. And the Lord will make u the head and not the tail; u shall be above only, and not be beneath, if u heed the commandments of the Lord your God, which I command u today, and are careful 2 observe them.  Deuteronomy 28:2,11-13

He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully...And God is able 2 make all grace abound toward u, that u, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance 4 every good work. 
2Corinthians 9:6-8

God gives Wisdom and Knowledge and Joy 2 a man who is good in His sight; but 2 the sinner He gives the work of gathering and collecting, that He may give 2 him who is good b4 God.  Ecclesiastes 2:26

The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want anything.  Psalm 23:1               See His Shop                                   

The Lord your God is bringing u into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and springs, that flow out of valleys and hills; a land of wheat and barley, of vines and fig trees and pomegranates, a land of olive oil and honey; a land in which u will eat bread w/o scarcity, in which u will lack nothing...

When u have eaten and are full, then u shall bless the Lord your God 4 the good land which He has given u...remember the Lord your God 4 it is He who gives u power 2 get Wealth, that He may Establish His Covenant which He swore 2 your fathers, as it is this very day. Deuteronomy 87-10, 18

Prayer: HEAVENLY Father, You know the financial needs and other concerns I'm facing today. Yet my greatest need is simply 2 seek You and Know You, and Your Voice, more intimately.  Acknowledging You as my Shepherd and Provider, I bring You my Tithes and Offerings. Your Word says You're bringing me into a "good Land' where I will lack nothing, 4 You give me the power 2 produce Wealth. When my financial breakthrough comes, I pledge 2 honor You w/the "First Fruits" and give You Glory 4 Your Blessings. As You bless me, Lord, I also pray You will make me a greater blessing 2 others. In Jesus' Name. AMEN!

Blessed are those who mourn, 4 they shall be comforted. Matthew 5:4

04. Grieving -  IF YOU'RE GRIEVING over the death of a loved one today, God wants u 2 enter His Presence and find a place of peace and safety. Let Him comfort u w/His loving embrace and restore His Joy 2 your soul.  God will not leave u in your sadness. He promises 2b right there w/u even as u "walk thru the valley of the shadow of death" [Psalm 23:4].  The Bible says God offers special healing balm 4 those who grieve, giving them "beauty 4 ashes, the oil of Joy for mourning" [Isaiah 61:3].  Yes, there may be weeping and pain 4 a Season, but He promises that a better day is ahead, a day of renewed hope and Joy: "He will swallow up death forever, and the Lord God will wipe away tears from all faces" [Isaiah 25:8].

I do not want u 2b ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest u sorrow as others who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again,  even so God will bring w/Him those who sleep in Jesus...For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven w/a shout, w/the voice of an archangel, and w/the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together w/them in the clouds 2 meet the Lord in the air.  And thus we shall always be w/the Lord. Therefore comfort one another w/these words. IThessalonians 4:13-18

The Lord is near 2 those who have a broken heart. Psalm 34:18

We are confident, yes, well pleased rather 2b absent from the body and 2b present w/the Lord. 2Corinthians 5:8

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able 2 comfort those who are in any trouble, w/the comfort w/which we ourselves are comforted by God. 2Corinthians 1:3-4

He has sent ME 2 heal the broken-hearted...2 console those who mourn in Zion, 2 give them beauty 4 ashes, the oil of Joy 4 mourning, the garment of praise 4 the spirit of heaviness; that they may be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified. Isaiah 61:1-3

O Death, where is your sting? O Hades, where is your victory? The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be 2 God, who gives us the victory thru our Lord Jesus Christ.  ICorinthians 15:55-57

The Lord has comforted His people, and will have mercy on His afflicted. Isaiah 49:13

God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, 4 the former things have passed away. Revelation 21:4

Prayer:  LORD, You have walked thru the valley of death, and You know the way. In this time of sorrow, led me 2 Your secret place of comfort and healing. Sustain me w/You Love, and restore peace 2 my soul.  You are near 2 those who are broken-hearted, and I need You 2 wrap Your strong and comforting arms around me today. Replace my ashes w/Your beauty, may pain w/Your purpose, and my heavy heart w/Your oil of Joy.  Lord, bring me thru this dark valley 2 a new day of hope and peace. As You are comforting and blessing me, use me 2 be a blessing 2 others. In Jesus' Name. Amen.

Casting all your care upon Him, 4 He cares 4 u.  IPeter 5:7

05. Overwhelmed by Circumstances - WE ARE NOT promised a trouble-free life in this world, but we ARE promised God will be w/us all along the way. He promises 2 lead us 2 victory if we put our trust in Him [2Corinthians 2:14].  Trust God today. Fix your eyes on Him instead of on your circumstances. As u do, you'll find Him 2b trustworthy--even in your darkest hours.  Remember: The Lord is right there w/u! Draw near 2 Himm, and He has promised 2 draw near 2 u, and He beckons u 2 come.

The Lord is Good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; and He knows those who trust Him. Nahum 1:7

When my heart is overwhelmed; lead me 2 the rock that is higher than I.  Psalm 61:2

The waters would have overwhelmed us, the stream would have gone over our soul; then the swollen waters would have gone over our soul. Our help is in the Name of the Lord, who made Heaven and Earth.  Psalm 124:4-5,8

Let not your heart be troubled; u believe in God, believe also in ME.  John 14:1

We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed.  2Corinthians 4:8-9

Psalm 121:1-2

Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient 4 the day is its own trouble.
Matthew 6:34

If it had not been the Lord who was on our side, when men rose up against us, then they would have swallowed us alive, when their wrath was kindled against us; then the waters would have overwhelmed us, the stream would have gone over our soul; then the swollen waters would have gone over our soul.  Blessed be the Lord, who has not given us as prey 2 their teeth. Our soul has escaped as a bird from the snare of the fowlers; the snare is broken, and we have escaped.  Psalm 124:6-8

Prayer:  FATHER, I need 2 hear Your strong and comforting voice today. My problems seem overwhelming, but I choose 2 fix my gaze on You. I choose 2 trust in Your mighty power and Your faithfulness.  Come 2 my aide, Lord. Lead me 2 the rock that is higher than I. Teach me 2 find shelter in the secret place of Your Presence.  I know that nothing will happen today that is outside Your knowledge and control. This is the day You have made, and I will rejoice and be glad in it! In Jesus' name. Amen.

Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed;  save me, and I shall be saved, for You are my praise.  Jeremiah 17:14

06. SICK - WHILE MOST PEOPLE today accept disease and death as 'normal' parts of life, they were never God's original intention. When the World was first created, the Bible records, "Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good" [Genesis 1:31]. Disease and death  only entered the World after Adam and Eve disobeyed the Lord and allowed satanic forces 2 gain a foothold on humankind [Genesis 3].  When Jesus came 2 Earth, He announced that God's Kingdom was at hand. He healed the sick, cast out demons, fed the multitudes, and raised the dead. All of this was a demonstration of the Blessings God intended at His original creation.  If u or a loved one is in need of healing today, remember that Jesus is your Great Physician. When He preached the Gospel of the Kingdom, He healed "ALL kinds of sickness and ALL kinds of disease" [Matthew 4:23]. So no matter what kind of healing u might need, Jesus is ready 2b your Healer!

Beloved, I pray that u may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers. 3John2

Jesus went about all the cities and villiages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people. Matthew 9:35

The whole multitude sought 2 touch Him, 4 power went out from Him and healed them all. Luke 6:19

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday [Past], today [Presence], and forever [Future]. Hebrews 13:8.

Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: who forgives all your iniquities, who heals all your diseases.  Psalm 103:2--3

If u diligently heed the voice of the Lord your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear 2 His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on u which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I AM the Lord who heals [continual process] u. Exodus 15:26

He was wounded 4 our transgressions, He was bruised 4 our iniquities; the chastisement 4 our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed. Isaiah 53:5

My son, give attention 2 MY Words; incline your ear 2 MY sayings. Do not let them depart from your eyes; keep them in the midst of your heart; 4 they are LIFE 2 those who find them, and HEALTH 2 all their flesh. Proverbs 4:20-22

He sent His Word and Healed them, and Delivered them from their destructions. Psalm 107:20

Is anyone among u sick? Let him call 4 the Elders of the Church, and let them pray over him, anointing him w/oil in the Name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. 
James 5:14-15

These signs will follow those who believe...They will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover. Mark 16:17-18

If the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in u, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life 2 your mortal bodies thru the His Spirit who dwells in u.  Romans 8:11

LORD JESUS, You are the same yesterday [my past], today [my current day], and forever [my future], and nothing is 2 difficult 4 You! I bring You my physical ailment today, asking 4 You 2 mightily intervene w/Your healing power. Manifest Your Kingdom and replace disease w/wholeness.  Send Your Word and heal me, Lord. Deliver me from every attack of the enemy. I declare that You died 4 my sickness as well as 4 my sins!  I give You praise in advance 4 touching my body and restoring me 2 health. May You be glorified thru my body as Your holy temple! In Your Name. AMEN.

Come, and let us return 2 the Lord.  Hosea 6:1

07. Spiritually Lukewarm - PERHAPS YOU'RE AT a place in your life today when you're crying out 2 God, as David once did: "Restore 2 me the Joy of Your Salvation!" [Psalm 51:12]. The Lord heard David's prayer, and He hears yours as well. Sometimes we can allow the cares and busyness of life 2 rob us of our peace and joy. Instead of the abundant life God intends 4 us, we experience drudgery and discouragement. Life becomes a rat race, and we lose sight of our calling and purpose in the Lord.  Come b4 God w/a humble heart today, and ask Him 2 restore your "first love" relationship w/Him [Revelation 2:4]. He will give u His Joy, rekindle your passion, and set u fre from lukewarm living!

Break up your fallow ground, 4 it is time 2 seek the Lord, till He comes and rains righteousness on u.  Hosea 10:12

I know your works, that u are neither cold nor hot. I could wish u were cold or hot. So then, bcoz u are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit u out of MY mouth.  Bcoz u say, "I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing"--and do not know that u are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked--I counsel u 2 buy from ME gold refined in the fire, that u may be rich; and white garments, that u may be clothed, that the shame of ur nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes w/eye salve, that u may see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent.  Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears MY Voice and opens the door, I will come in 2 him and dine w/him, and he w/ME. To him who overcomes I will grant 2 sit w/ME on MY Throne, as I also overcame and sat down w/MY Father on His Throne. He who has an ear, let him hear.  Revelation 3:15-22

Stand in the ways and see, and ask 4 the old paths, where the good way is, and walk in it; then u will find Rest 4 your souls.
Jeremiah 61:6

My anger has turned away from him. Hosea 14:4

I will heal their Backsliding, I will love them freely, 4 "Return 2 ME, and I will return 2 u," says the Lord of Hosts. Malachi 3:7

Beware that u do not forget the Lord your God by not keeping His commandments, His judgments, and His statutes which I command u today, lest--when u have eaten and are full, and have built beautiful houses and dwell in them; and when your herds and your flocks multiply, and your silver and your gold are multiplied, and all that u have is multiplied; when your heart is lifted up, and u forget the Lord your God who brought u out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage. Deuteronony 8:11-14

The backslider in heart will be filled w/his own ways, but a good man will be satisfied from above. Proverbs 14:14

Today, if u will hear His Voice, do not harden your hearts...Beware, brethren, lest there be in any of u an evil heart of Unbelief in departing from the living God; but exhort one another daily, while it is called "Today," lest any of u be hardened thru the deceitfulness of sin.  For we have become partakers of Christ if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast 2 the end. Hebrews 3:7-8,12-14

Prayer:  FATHER, restore my passion 4 You and Your purposes. Deliver me from apathy and lukewarmness. Remove anything in my life that is hindering my intimacy w/You.  Lord, forgive me 4 the earthbound perspective I've had. Instead of living 4 the things of this World, I want my life 2 reflect Your eternal purposes.  I'm tired of just going thru the motions in my Christian life.

08.  Uncertain About God's Ways - THE BIBLE MAKES 2 important points about our knowledge of God's ways. On the one hand, His ways are clearly higher than our ways. But the Bible also reveals God's desire 2 show us His ways. realizing this, David prayed,
Show me Your ways, O Lord; teach me Your paths" [Psalm 25:4].  And amazingly, the apostle Paul states, "We have the mind of Christ" [1Corinthisan 2:16].  God wants 2 show u His ways. He wants 2 reveal His great plan and purpose 4 your life! But u have a role 2 play in this too.  Take time 2 study and meditate on God's Word. Set aside a special time and place each day when u can come into His Presence and Listen 2 His Voice. Keep a Journal of the Direction He gives u 4 your life, and commit yourself 2 following His Instructions. The more u trust and obey Him, the more He will unfold a Revelation of His Will 4 u!

09. Waiting on God - ALMOST NOTHING is as difficult 4 most people as waiting. Whether we're waiting in rush hour traffic or in a grocery store line, impatience--or even anger--can engulf us.

However, God repeatedly tells us in His Word that we are 2 wait on Him.  This means taking time 2 enter into His Presence 2 worship Him...Listen... Meditate...and share our heart.  Why is this so important? Waiting is a Key that
unlocks greater intimacy w/Him. And the Bible describes many amazing benefits 4 those who take time 2 wait on the Lord: Strength, Hope, Courage, Provision, guidance, Encouragement, and Vision. all these-- and more--are the Rewardss you will receive when u wait on God!

Have u not known? Have u not heard? The everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the Earth, neither faints nor is weary. His understanding is unsearchable. He gives power 2 the weak, and 2 those who hav no might He increases strength.

This I recall 2 my mind, therefore I have hope. Through the Lord's mercies we are not consumed, bcoz His compassion(s) fail not. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness. "The Lord is my portion," says my soul, "Therefore I hope in Him!"  The Lord is good 2 those who wait 4 Him, 2 the soul who seeks Him. It is good that one should hope and wait quietly 4 the Salvation of the Lord.  Lamentations 3:21-26

I will stand my watch and set myself on the rampart, and watch 2C what He will say 2 me, and what I will answer when I am corrected.  The Lord answered me and said: "WRITE the VISION and make it plain on tablets, that he may run who reads it.  For the VISION is yet 4 an appointed time; but at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Tho it tarries, wait 4 it; bcoz it will surely come, it will not tarry. Habakkuk 2:1-3

Indeed, let no one who waits on You be ashamed...Show me Your ways, O Lord; Teach me Your paths.  Psalm 25:3-4

~ Beloved if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence toward God.   IJohn 3:21 ~

01. Confidence - FEELINGS OF FEAR and inadequacy can steal our confidence, boldness, and peace of mind. Such feelings attempt 2 paralyze us from stepping into God's highest will 4 our lives. But in the midst of all the challenges of life, God wants us 2 put our trust in Him. When we do, He gives us the confidence we need 2 find victory in every situation. This confidence does not come from a reliance on our own ability, 4 the Word says "we should not trust in ourselves but in God" [2Corinthians 1:9].

Do u want this kind of unshakable confidence in your life? Then remember the words of the apostle Paul: "Not that we are sufficient of ourselves 2 think of anything as being from ourselves, but our sufficiency is from God" [2Corin 3:5].

We may boldly say: "The Lord is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do 2 me?" [Hebrews 13:6]

This is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we Ask Anything according 2 His Will, He hears us. And if we Know that He hears us, Whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him [IJohn 5:14-15]

I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ, 4 it is the power of God 2 Salvation 4 everyone who believes, 4 the Jew first and also 4 the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith-2-faith; as it is written, "The just shall live by faith." [Romans 1:16-17]

I can do ALL things thru Christ who strengthens me [bcoz it is Him doing it, not me] Phil 4:13

02. Courage -  HEBREWS 11 lists some men and women in the Lord's "Hall of Faith." Each of these heroes exemplified bold faith in God that enabled them 2 take courage, even in very difficult circumstances. We ea need courage in order 2 fulfill God's purposes 4 our lives. We may not have 2 slay a giant [as David], survive a den of hungry lions [like Daniel], or lead people across the Red Sea [as Moses did], but we will surely need the same kind of courage and boldness 2 achieve the victory God has mapped out 4 our lives. Whatever challenges u are facing TODAY, remember this: You can be bold and strong, 4 God has promised 2b w/u!

The Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is Liberty.  2Corinthians 3:17

03. Deliverance - GOD NEVER intended 4 His people 2b fearful or hesitant in dealing w/satan and the forces of darkness. The Gospels describe deliverance as a vital part of Jesus' ministry, and it is still a vital ministry today! Jesus not only demonstrated the importance of preaching, teaching, and healing, but He also showed us the value of spiritual discernment, casting out demons, rebuking satan, and taking authority over the powers of darkness. We do not need 2 shrink back from this spiritual battle, 4 the Bible says God has given us the weapons and armor we need 4 victory. As u declare His Word over your life, God will deliver u from every chain and bondage--and He will bring u into His freedom!

The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, bcoz He has anointed Me 2 preach the gospel 2 the poor; He has sent Me 2 heal the broken-hearted, 2 proclaim liberty 2 the captives and recovery of sight 2 the blind, 2 set at liberty those who are oppressed; 2 proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord. [Luke 4:18-19]

For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil. [IJohn 3:8]

You shall know the truth, and the truth shall make u free...Therefore if the Son makes u free, u shall be free indeed. [John 8:32,36]

Lord, even the demons are subject 2 us in Your Name. [Luke 10:17]

Behold, I give u the authority 2 trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and Nothing shall by any means hurt u. [Luke 10:19]

[2Timothy 4:18]

Do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the Kingdom and the Power and the Glory forever. [Matthew 6:13]

Prayer:  HEAVENLY FATHER, thank You 4 sending Jesus 2 destroy the works of the devil and set spiritual captives free. Your Word says You've given Your people weapons and armor 2 overcome ALL the power of the enemy!  I submit my life fully 2 You and ask You 2 reveal any demonic influence or bondage in my life. I repent of areas of sin that have given the enemy a foothold.

In Jesus' Name, I rebuke any demon that would oppress, torment, or bind me or my loved ones. I declare freedom and deliverance in Jesus' might Name! O Lord, Thank You that Your sweet Holy Spirit in me is more powerful than any satanic weapon formed against me. In Jesus' sweet name. AMEN!

I will be merciful 2 their unrighteousness, and their sins and their lawless deed. I will remember no more. Hebrews 8:12

04. Forgiveness -  GOD WANTS 2 SHOW U His forgiveness, and He wants u 2 know you're forgiven (IJohn 5:11-12). Being forgiven in God's sight isn't a matter of good works, penance, or just trying harder-it's based on the work of Jesus on the Cross when He died for your sins!  Isaiah 53:6 says, "All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned, every one, 2 his own way; and the Lord has laid on [Jesus] the iniquity of us all."  If u don't yet have assurance that u are forgiven and accepted by God, this can be your day, your MOMENT! for a New Beginning! On the basis of God's Word, turn from any known sins in your life and ask Him 2 forgive u, 4 He already has provided it.

In Him we have redemption thru His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according 2 the riches of His grace.  Ephesians 1:7

If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away, behold, all things have become new. 2Corinthians 5:17

Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: who forgives all your iniquities, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from destruction, who crowns u w/lovingkindness and tender mercies, who satisfies your mouth w/good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.

I want 2 take steps of faith and Sow financial Seeds that will result in a great Harvest of Your Provision.  Father, I seek Your Kingdom and Your Righteousness. As You bless me, I pledge that I will be a blessing 2 others. I want 2 abound 4 every good work You've planned 4 me!  In Jesus' Powerful Name. AMEN.

Thank Your Way 2 Peace

Philippians 4:6 - Be anxious 4 nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with Thanksgiving, let your requests be made known 2 God;

You would probably have read this verse b4, but would u like 2 know how 2 apply it in your everyday life? Let me give u an illustration 2 help u.

Let’s say that u are one of those in your company eligible for a promotion and u will know tomorrow whether u get it. You want the promotion badly bcoz it means more income for your family. So u lie in bed at night tossing and turning. You pray, “Father, please take away all my worries about this promotion. Give me faith.” One hour later, u are more anxious than ever. It seems like God is not answering your prayer!

How come? Bcoz u are not doing it God’s way.

Pray like this instead: “Father, I cast all my worries about the promotion into Your loving hands because You care 4 me and love me.” The Bible tells us 2 cast all our cares upon the Lord for He cares for us. (1 Peter 5:7) Then, say, “Father, I would like 2 have the promotion.” It is okay 2 ask Him for that. Now, here comes the most powerful part — thanksgiving. Finish off with thanksgiving. Thank God for His faithfulness.

Say something like, “Father, whether I get the promotion or not, I thank You that You will always provide for my family with more than enough. You who feed the birds of the air and clothe the lilies of the field will take care of us. So I am not going 2 worry about this promotion. You are the source of all my blessings.” (Matthew 6:30, Philippians 4:19)

When u pray like this, all of a sudden, u are no longer held hostage by the promotion. I call this the “thank u” therapy. The more u know God’s Word, the more u can thank Him. The more u thank Him, the more His peace reigns in your heart. And many a time, b4 u know it, it is morning! You don’t even remember falling asleep. The peace of God reigns like that.

My friend, whatever your concern is, bring it 2 your Father in prayer and thank your way 2 peace!

=== When u find yourself in a position of misunderstanding or an altercation, your 1st instinct is 2 fight 4 the victim position so that u do not have 2 take the blame.  But honestly if u do this, it will only make the problem worse. I call u 2 take the position of humility & integrity instead of trying 2 protect your tenuous & questionable innocence.  Be the first 2 apologize 4 your part in the division, says the Lord, 4 in doing so u will be able 2 [[ defuse ]] the situation. 

Matthew 5:23-26  "Therefore if u bring your gift 2 the altar, & there remember that your brother has something against u, leave your gift there b4 the altar, & go your way. First be reconciled 2 your brother, & then come & offer your gift.
    Agree w/your adversary quickly, while u are on the way w/him, lest your adversary deliver u 2 the judge, the judge hand u over 2 the officer, & u be thrown into prison.  Assuredly, I say 2 u, u will by no means get out of there till u have paid the last penny."

Pray Perfect Prayers In The Spirit

Romans 8:27 - Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, bcoz He makes intercession 4 the saints according 2 the will of God.

Wouldn’t u like 2 pray effective prayers that are always in line w/the will of God & which always hit the mark? Well, when u pray in the Spirit, u can.

You see, when we pray in English or our known language, & according 2 our limited understanding, we can pray amiss. Sometimes, our heads get in the way & we find ourselves asking, “Isn’t it selfish of me 2pray like this?” or “Am I praying in line with God’s will?”
My friend, that is why God gives us the gift of praying in tongues. When we pray in tongues or in the Holy Spirit, we can never pray out of God’s will bcoz the Holy Spirit “makes intercession 4 the saintsaccording 2 the will of God”.

In other words, we pray perfect prayers in line with God’s will when we pray in tongues. And the Bible goes on 2tell us that “if we ask anything according 2 His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him”. (1 John 5:14–15)

Isn’t it wonderful that God has put in u the Holy Spirit who prays perfectly? He knows the heart of God & precisely what u need. And He makes intercession 4 u bcoz He loves u very much.

The Holy Spirit is like your lawyer or legal counselor. He knows what belongs 2 u legally. He knows what your blood-bought rights are in Christ. Best of all, He knows exactly how 2 enforce them in your life!

Beloved, when u pray in tongues, u allow the Holy Spirit 2 pray perfect prayers through u. He pleads your case before God. He knows where u have gone wrong & what the root of the problem is. He alsohas the wisdom, solution & power 2 win your case. With the Holy Spirit on your side, u cannot but come out victorious!

Encouragement 4 NOVEMBER

========   To God be all the glory 4 His loving care and consistancy. Truly a month 2b thankful and count our many blessings as there is always someone who has less than you.  If I were 2 look at all my problems on one side of a piece of paper, and then began 2 list all of the good things God has done in my life, the good would require more sheets of paper 2 record all the Love that God has gifted.  Friends, the BEST is still yet 2 come, do not look only 2 today, bcoz it is only 24 hours, tomorrow is still on the Horizon! Jeremiah 29:11...God knows all the good plans prepared 4 u still!; He LOVES u so much! Be blessed in Jesus Name.

01NOV - Pay attention, prophets of Mine. Silence your flesh, listen and C by the Spirit. For, the trumpet is about 2 sound in preparation 4 the heavenly announcement 2 come forth. Prepare yourselves 2 hear, and I will speak 2 My people thru u. It will be a clear and vital message that only the pure in heart will perceive, and only those whose hearts are open will receive. Wait patiently 4 its soon release, says the Lord.

Amos 3:7 -Surely the Lord GOD does nothing, unless He reveals His secret 2 His servants the prophets.

01Nov  The POWER of LOVE - Do u want God 2 put a shotgun of spiritual power in your hand  so u can blow the works of the devil 2 kingdom come?  Than let Him teach u how 2 walk in more Love.  God wants u 2 exert more of His power.  But 1st, He has 2b sure that u won't mix it w/judgment and criticism and blast people out of the water.  When faith is mixed w/Love, signs and wonders and miracles will happen.  So power of God operating thru u.

Galatians 5:6 -For IN Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision avails anything but Faith working through LOVE.

02NOV - There are adjustments  2b made if u will live and walk in the Spirit. Watch 4 and discern those things that remove u from My presence, says the Lord. For, there are thoughts, motives, and actions that need 2b overcome and abandoned 4 the sake of peace and eternal benefit. The enemy of your soul continues 2 watch 4 opportunities 2 destroy u. This is a time when u should make your call and election sure.

2 Peter 1:5-11 - But also 4 this very reason, giving all diligence, add 2 your faith virtue, 
2 virtue knowledge, 
2 knowledge self-control, 
2 self-control perseverance, 
2perseverance godliness, 
2 godliness brotherly kindness, 
and 2 brotherly kindness love. 

For if these things are yours and abound, u will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. For he who lacks these things is shortsighted, even 2 blindness, and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins. Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent 2 make your call and election sure, 4 if u do these things u will never stumble; 4 so an entrance will be supplied 2 u abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

02NOV - He Opened the WAY- Jesus did His mighty works on earth thru the Anointing and Power of the Holy Spirit.  He said, "It's the Father within Me Who does the work."  Jesus gave u a promise that u would be able 2 do the works that He did.  That means that u, as a reborn child of God, filled w/the same Holy Spirit as Jesus, have the opportunity 2 live as He lived when He was on the Earth.  He went b4 u and opened the way.  Follow Him and do the mighty works!

John 1:1, 14 - In the BEGINNING was the WORD, and the Word was with GOD, and the Word WAS God...And the WORD became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His Glory, the Glory as the only Begotten of the Father, full of Grace and TRUTH.

03NOV - I have gone b4 u and established the path 2 liberty. I Am the way, the Truth and the Life. Hear the sound of My Voice as I call u 2 come out of darkness into light and out of bondage into freedom. Your righteousness is of Me if u will accept it and live in the reality of redemption. There are no valid excuses 4 staying in darkness or bondage, 4 I Am the way-maker. I have made a way 4 u, says the Lord. Come forth into the glorious light.

Romans 8:2 - For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.

03NOV - An Experienced Champion - The force of FAITH has the power 2 rejuvenate your    physical body.  That is God's desire 4 u in your old age.  He wants u 2b a powerful, experienced champion of the Word w/your strength renew by FAITH. [Faith is having confidence IN God's abilities, so that u do not feel u are alone anymore but in partnership w/Him]

Isaiah 40:31 - But those [anyone] who wait on the LORD Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up w/wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk 
and not faint.         Elegantlysimple

04NOV - If u will cooperate w/the work I am doing in u and in My Body, I will bring u into a wide place, and u will be released from restrictions that have kept u from moving freely w/the flow of My Spirit. Some of these restrictions have been the result of your interaction w/other people, and some restrictions have been of your own making and choices. Now is the time when u can establish yourself in greater freedom than u have ever known, says the Lord.

John 8:32 -"And u shall know the truth, and the truth shall make u free."

04NOV - It Only Takes a Few - No nation is so far gone God cannot change it.  A few people can turn a nation around.  If Hitler could change a country 4 the worse, u can be sure that a group of men and women w/God's power resting on them can change a nation 4 the better.  God said, "If MY people which are called by MY Name ... "It is not going 2 take everybody in the nation 2 get things turned around, but those that belong 2 HIM.  His promise is 2 change the land if MY people pray.  Quit trying 2 work it out yourself.  God Himself will do the Healing in this land.  Your job is 2 pray, 2 believe and 2 seek His face.  It only takes a few!

2 Chronicles 7:14 - "If MY People who are called by MY Name will humble themselves, and pray and seek MY face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from Heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their Land.

05NOV - Fight the Right Enemy - Persecution is not the manifestation of another person's hate 4 u.  Do not be deceived into believing that just bcoz a person said or did something 2 hurt u, that person is not the one u need 2 fight.  The Bible says u do not wrestle w/flesh and blood, but against principalities, powers, against rulers of the darkness.  Satan  and his demons are behind every personal affront u encounter.  Satan is afraid of u!  When u get into the Word of God and start swinging it around like the sword of the Spirit [speaking what God says in agreement]; He get scared!  He [satan] look 4 some person 2 send in there 2 stop u.  Fight the right foe in your battles, realizing it is not people but satan behind them. God will give u the Victory 'every time' when u deal with an enemy in Love!

2 Corinthians 10:3 - "The Spiritual War"  - For tho we walk in the flesh, we do not war according 2 the flesh.

06NOV - You are a WINNER - If u have been feeling like a failure lately, renew your mind 2 the Word of God that says u are a SUCCESS.  It does not matter how much u feel like a loser.  It does not matter how many times u have failed in the past.  U are a conqueror thru Jesus Christ.  God has guaranteed that u will succeed thru Jesus.  He said in His Word that u are an overcomer.  IN Him u can overcome any problem the world throws your way!  U will be able 2 go thru trouble and emerge triumphant.  Every time a challenge comes up, respong by SAYING, "Well, praise God, I can beat this thing bcoz I am an overcomer!"  The Word of God will make a WINNER out of u! Keep SAYING it 'until' u yourself believe it!

I John 2:14 - "Their Spiritual State" - I have written 2 u, fathers, Bcoz u have known Him who is from the Beginning, I have written 2 u, young men, Bcoz u are strong, and the Word of God abides in u.  And u have overcome the wicked one.

07NOV - Open your eyes, My beloved, 4 I will indeed show u wondrous things in these  days. The things that u have yearned 4 and sought after will indeed become a spiritual reality, which u cannot only grasp, C and hear, but the truth of these matters will be validated by the Spirit, that lives in u, as He confirms that which I am doing in these days, says the Lord. For the mysteries of old, the mysteries that have been hidden, the mysteries that have been set aside 4 this time will indeed be revealed as u continue 2 walk in My presence and in My power. In this coming year, as u give yourself 2 My purposes and willingly live under My divine government, the supernatural and unusual shall begin 2 manifest in your midst. Miracles will bring transformation that u have longed 2 C, and the healing power of the Most High will flow like living water among My people. I will make a distinction between those who are Mine and those who are not Mine. The line has been drawn in the sand. Do not cross the line but stand behind it in My purposes, in My power and in My presence.

I heard the Lord say: My prophets have been isolated and scattered, and the prophetic word has been difficult 4 them 2 hear bcoz the roar of the enemy has risen 2 drown out the word of the Lord. Many have become prey 2 the evening wolves, and they have been distracted and even disheartened by their days of adversity and affliction. But, I tell u truly that there is a call from heaven going forth even now 4 the true prophets 2 arise on the fresh wind and anointing of My Spirit and soar 2 new heights, 2 hear My voice loud and clear, and 2 make the prophetic announcement.

Isaiah 40:31 But those who wait on the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up w/wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.

07NOV - Delight Yourself -  The time 2 start establishing yourself on the Word is right now.  Be ready b4 the devil attacks!  As u learn 2 delight in the Word, your heart will become fixed!  You are Victorious b4 the battle ever gets 2 u.  So turn off the TV and other distractions of the world and turn on the Word.  Delight yourself in the Lord NOW.

Psalms 112:1,7 - Praise the LORD!  BLESSED is the man who fears the Lord, Who delights greatly in His commandments [Instructions].  He will not be afraid of evil tidings; His heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord...not what he sees or hears, but by what God says and so believing and agreeing w/God words keeps one steady in faith.

08NOV - Look around u, and C economies and governments beginning 2 crumble. Truly, the signs of end-time events are all around u. Yet, this is not a time when u should be afraid, but a time 2 rejoice that the day of redemption draws near. This is a time when your hope will be realized in putting your trust in Me, says the Lord, and not in world systems. Your faith is 2 precious 2 waste on man-made empires. Set your heart and faith on things eternal and not on the temporary.

Luke 21:28  -" Now when these things begin 2 happen, look up and lift up your heads, bcoz your redemption draws near."

08NOV - The Hidden Things of God - The Kingdom of God has a Knowledge that works its way from inside out instead of from the outside in.  It is called Revelation Knowledge.  Revelations are 'hidden' in God.  The Bible says God has hidden it 4 u, not from u.  God wants u 2 have it.  But u have 2 seek Him.  Begin meditating the Word; fellowship w/the Lord.  Begin 2 receive those revelations from Him.  The hidden things of God are 4 u!

Matthew 16:17 - Jesus answered and said 2 him, "Blessed are u, Simon Bar-Honah, 4 flesh and blood has not revealed this 2 u, but My Father who is in Heaven.

09NOV - My beloved people, I am calling 2 u, urging u 2 draw near 2 Me into a place of spiritual vitality. It is My desire that u give no place 4 the lusts of the flesh, but that u completely yield 2 the moving of My Holy Spirit. In that spiritual reality, u will begin 2 live in the strength and protection of righteousness. Righteousness is a strong fortress against attacks from the forces of evil, says the Lord. Draw near.

Romans 13:14 - But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision 4 the flesh, 2 fulfill its lusts.

09NOV - Brag on God - Brag on God today.  The devil can't stand it!  He won't be able 2 steal one thing from u when u rejoice over God.  "Be steadfast and patient in suffering and tribulation..."  Tribulation means "being under pressure."   When pressure comes, do not cave in.  Do not faint.  Instead, go 2 the throne of grace.  Go boldly in the Name of Jesus and get the help u need.  Do not let go of the Word when things get hard.  That is when u need 2 double up on it.  Be constant in prayer s that u are unmovable.  Brag on God today!

Romans 12:12 - ..rejoicing in Hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer;

10NOV - I have spoken 2 u about a new freedom and liberty in preparation 4 the release that will provide an avenue by which u will be able 2 move 2 a new level of spiritual experience. There is still much 4 u 2 learn and understand about living and walking in the Spirit. The knowledge that u gain now will be invaluable in obtaining the victory both in the natural realm and in the spiritual realm, says the Lord. Let Me lead u 2 new heights.

2 Corinthians 2:14 - Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.

10NOV - The Inner Witness - Tune in today 2 that inward witness, 2 that quiet knowing, that urging, prompting and leading arising within u.  The Holy Spirit lives in your spirit 2 teach u and 2 give u directions/instructions 4 your life.  God's Written Word and the inward witness are two different things.  They never contradict each other and they are both a vital part of our walk w/God.  Romans 8 says the Holy Spirit bears witness w/our spirit.  That means that God speaks 2 your spirit, and your spirit translates it into a THOUGHT.  He will guide u w/His inner witness.

Romans 8:16 -  The Spirit Himself bears witness w/our spirit that we are children of God.

11NOV - Don't forget who u are in Me, says the Lord. Refuse 2 allow worldly distractions or lusts of the flesh 2 distract u from My presence. Keep your eternal perspective, and maintain clear spiritual focus. Your spiritual growth and clarity depend on your measure of self-control. You are on the threshold of spiritual insights and greater understanding of My kingdom, so don't stop here or go back. Keep pressing on.

2 Corinthians 10:5 - casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity 2 the obedience of Christ.

11NOV - A Powerhouse of Protection - When the devil attacks u in some area of your life, do not sit around crying and begging God 2 save u.  Open up your Bible 2 Isaiah 54:17 instead.  Remind yourself what God has promised u.  Use that promise 2 strengthen yourself against sin and every other evil work the devil would like 2 use 2 keep u bound.  No weapon formed against u shall prosper!  Is it not good 2  know that no sickness, no circumstance, no problem that rises against u can successfully bring u down when u walk by faith?  Do not let the powerhouse of God's protection go 2 waste.  It is your inheritance as a servant of the Lord.

Isaiah 54:17 - "...No weapon formed against u shall prosper, And every tongue which rises against u in judgment, u shall condemn.  This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is from Me," Says the Lord.

12NOV - Open the Flow - Sin hinders the Spirit's flow.  The power and glory of God will be manifested thru u when u rid your life of sin.  Then...u will experience the wonderful things God has prophesied that will take place in this generation.  Make up your mind that u are not going 2 let the sins of the flesh rob u of the glory of God.  It is possible 2 step out of the sin u have struggled w/so long and live under the Spirit's control.  Look 2 Jesus... He will show u HOW-2 open the flow!

Hebrews 12:1-2 - Therefore, we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run w/endurance the race that is set b4 us;  looking unto Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our Faith, who 4 the Joy that was set b4 Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the Throne of God.

13NOV - Stake Your Claim - Do not let anyone talk u out of God's promises of prosperity.  U do not  have 2 choose between financial and spiritual prosperity.  Both belong 2 u.  Jesus said, "IF u will first seek the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, then ALL these [material] things will be ADDED 2 u."  He knows the spiritual realm and the material realm are connected.  The physical world cannot operate independently from the spiritual world.  What happens in one is simply a reflection of what happens in the other.  As a born-again child of God, dare 2 reach out and receive the riches that belong 2 u!

Psalms 112:1,3 - PRAISE the LORD!  BLESSED is the person who fears the LORD.  Who delights greatly in His commandments [Instructions].

14NOV - Receive that which I send. Receive it as a blessing. Receive the sound of the kingdom into your being. Let it mould u and make u into the image of My glory and the presence of My being. Allow Me 2 do this work in u. For, that which would take place in these days has been determined long ago, says the Lord. These are the days of destiny fulfilled; these are the days of discovery; these are the days in which u, My people, can become what I have spoken of u. My blessings now will be revealed in such magnitude and in such astounding ways that u will find yourself surprised and then surprised again and continuing 2b surprised by the Spirit of the Lord, 4 these are the days of the release of My power. Rise 2 the occasion and be all that u can be in these season and time.
14NOV - These are times when u can put forth a supreme effort 2 strengthen that which remains. There has been a very great shaking that has caused many 2 feel unsteady, but many things that have been shaken out were things that needed 2 go so that u can be strengthened and established more completely in your spiritual destiny. Let go of any sense of loss or failure and move forward in strength of spirit, says the Lord.

Hebrews 12:27 - Now this, "Yet once more," indicates the removal of those things that are being shaken, as of things that are made, that the things which cannot be shaken may remain.

14NOV - When the Pressure is On - When tough times keep dragging on and the situation around u seem 2 refuse 2 get in line w/the promises of God, do not reevaluate God!  He is not missing it, and He is not failing.  Instead of reevaluating God's faithfulness, reevaluate yourself.  Look and C where u may have failed.  Stay faithful when the pressure is on.  U may not know why things have not changed 4 the better yet, but keep trusting God and obey Him quickly.  The Lord is listening 2 u when the pressure is on.  What is He hearing?  Always speak good things about God!

Malachi 3:6 - "For I AM the LORD, I do not change;  Therefore u are not consumed, O sons of Jacob.

15NOV - I am enlightening the eyes of your understanding so that u can C beyond your circumstances and temporary issues 2 view and understand your calling more fully. This light will bring perspective so that u don't obsess about that which will come 2 pass. Set your eyes and your faith on the things that matter long-term, and don't worry, says the Lord.

Ephesians 1:18 - the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints.

15NOV - Put Love 2 Work - Put the power of Love 2 work on your stubborn problems.  The power of love is the greatest power in the universe.  It is beyond defeat.  It never fails!  Release love every moment into every situation, every prayer and every thought  until it totally consumes your life.  When u release love into a situation, u have released God into it bcoz God is Love.  The person who refuses 2 love is missing out on the very best God has 2 offer.  Love drives the devil out and causes God's greater blessings 2 come 2 u!

I Corinthians 13:13 - And now abide Faith, Hope, Love, these 3; but the greatest of these is Love.

16NOV - The challenges that u have faced since Rosh Hashanah (September 28-30, 2011) have been 4 the purpose of coming face-2-face w/aspects of your life that needed attention. These situations presented an opportunity 2 either overcome and gain the victory or become a victim of circumstances. Those who have had breakthrough are those who exercised a higher level of faith both in prayer and warfare. For those who overcame and realized the victory, the only thing left 4 u 2 do is a spiritual version of mopping up after the mess. That is 2 apply the cleansing blood of Christ and be free from all defilement of flesh and spirit. For those who were victimized, u will have another opportunity down the road 2 overcome, but do not fear. I am w/u always, says the Lord.

Matthew 28:20b - "...and lo, I am w/u always, even 2 the end of the age." Amen.

16NOV - Pick Up Your Sword -  Do not wait 4 God 2 slay the dragon in your life.  U have the sword of the Spirit!  God will give u the PLAN and He will give u the Power.  He guarantees your Victory.  When your back is up against the wall, God will use your hand 2 get the job done.  U are His instrument!  U are going 2 have 2 stretch forth your hand by speaking and acting on the Word, even when circumstances are against u.  God's Word is all-powerful.  It is the sword that will slay your dragon today.  Pick it up, put it in your mouth.  Use it!

I Timothy 6:11-12 - "The Good Confession" -  But u, O man of God, flee these things and pursue Righteousness, Godliness, Faith, Love, Patience, Gentleness.  Fight the GOOD fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, 2 which u were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.

17NOV - The light of revelation is shining as a beacon of understanding to reveal your own heart. You can't do anything about what you cannot see. But, when the light comes you will be able to see your thoughts, emotions, desires and will more completely and make adjustments where necessary. I am calling you to Myself to be the Bride without spot or wrinkle, and this is a time of preparation, says the Lord.

Ephesians 5:27  -that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish.

17NOV - The Power 2 Create - Find out  what real creativity is all about.  Dig into the Word and start rebuilding your World today.  If u are a born-again child of Almighty God, He has given u the principle and the power 2 make permanent changes in your life and in your circumstances.  The Word has supernatural power.  If u fill that Word w/faith and SPEAK it out, it will work 4 u 2 change your life.  God SPOKE the World into existence.  Start rebuilding your world today.  SPEAK IT OUT!

Ephesians 5:1 - Therefore be followers of God as dear children.

18NOV - Resist the temptation 2 make a mountain out of the proverbial molehill or 2 create an issue out of something not worth your time or effort 2 consider. You will have unique opportunities 2 think about your position in the light of spiritual reality and 2b able 2 C the value in not overreacting emotionally 2 things that represent a challenge 2 u. When u are not sure which way 2 turn, ask Me and I will show u the way, says the Lord. Plant your feet on the ground of hope and faith, and do not compromise your position.

1 Peter 1:20-21 - He indeed was foreordained b4 the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times 4 u who thru Him believe in God, who raised Him from the dead and gave Him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God.

18NOV - Do You Know What 2 Ask For? - Jesus is available 2 meet your needs today.  He is willing!  The question is, do u really know what 2 ask for?  Blind Bartimaeus had many needs when Jesus walked by him that day.  He probably had more problems than u could shake a stick at.  He was not only blind, he was a beggar!  Sight was what Bartimaeus needed.  If he could obtain his sight, all the rest would fall into line.  He knew what 2 ask Jesus.  Do u know?  Pray about that.  Ask the Lord 2 open your eyes and show u what u really need.  Instead of hitting around the edges of your problem, your prayers will go straight 2 the heart of the problem.  You will know what 2 ask 4 when u pray.

Mark 10:51 - And Jesus answered and said 2 him, "What do u want Me 2 do 4 u?"  The blind man said 2 Him, "Rabboni, that I may receive my sight."

19NOV - From Milk 2 Meat - God has commissioned us 2 train believers who are  unskilled in the Word of righteousness and help bring them 2 maturity.  There are more spiritual babies being born all the time and we can help bring them from milk 2 meat.  When there is immaturity in the Body, the devil can make a public display of those weaknesses.  Divisions and criticisms tear apart and cause disunity.  God has called us 2 "exhort one another daily."  How can we fulfill that command?  Fill ourselves so full of His Word that is spills out on everyone we meet, and encourage them 2 go on and grow up in Jesus!  Whatever He says, do it!  Exhort His Body today!

Hebrews 5:12 - "Spiritual Immaturity" - For thought by this time u ought 2b teachers, u need someone 2 teach u again the 1st principles of the oracles of God; and u have come 2 need milk and not solid food.

20NOV - Recall God's Mercies - Make it a point 2 remind yourself of God's faithfulness 2 u every morning.  Remind yourself of the benefits that are yours in Jesus!  Psalms 103 lists these benefits.  Rehearse them daily:  

He forgives all your sins.  
He heals all your diseases.  
He redeems your life from destruction.  
He crowns u w/loving kindness and tender mercies.  
He satisfies your mouth w/good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.  
He executes righteousness and judgment 4 u against oppression.
He sets u free.
He makes known His ways 2 u.
He gives u His grace and mercy in time of need.  Remember these blessings everyday and watch them come alive in u!

Lamentations 3:21-23 - This I recall 2 my mind.  Therefore I have HOPE.  Thru the Lord's mercies we are not consumed.  Bcoz His compassion(s) fail not.  They are new every morning;  Great is Your faithfulness O Lord.

21NOV - I've come 2 u 2 bring u the revelation of who I am and 2 establish My true character in your being. It will overhaul your thinking, your concepts, and your mindsets, and it will regenerate in u the seed of the Kingdom, the truth and power of the kingdom. For, u have the ability and the right 2b strong in the power of My presence. Allow Me, this moment, 2 open the eyes of your understanding that u may C that which I am doing w/u, in u and around u. Do not be discouraged but allow faith, hope and love 2 arise in your heart. Remember that I am 4 u, not against u. I have gone b4 u and prepared the way so that u may walk on that path of righteousness, and that path leads 2 victory. I do not condemn u, so do not be disheartened but rise up in a place of knowledge, trust and faith, says the Lord God.

21NOV - One of the most valuable weapons in your arsenal is discernment. Ask 4 discernment, and I will show u how 2 fight effectively and gain the victory in warfare. It is My battle, but u are My battle axes and weapons of war. Fight against My foe and yours in faith and w/the authority that I have given u 2 overcome, says the Lord.

Jeremiah 51:20 - "You are My battle-ax and weapons of war: For w/u I will break the nation in pieces; With u I will destroy kingdoms."


21NOV - Give God the Glory - The Bible says that God gets the glory when people C the lame walk and the blind C [Matthew 15:32].  Jesus said, "Herein is My Father glorified, when u bear much fruit" [John 15:8].  What is that fruit?  Lives being touched, restored and healed by the power of God.  It brings God glory when u minister healing and deliverance like Jesus.  Do not let the traditions of men hold u back.  People need results when they come  a healing meeting and preaching service.  Minister His healing and deliverance today and give God the glory.

John 15:8 - "by this My Father is glorified, that u bear much fruit; so u will be My disciples.

22NOV - Beloved, rise up in faith 2 know that no weapon formed against u will prosper. It doesn't matter what the enemy brings against u, u belong 2 Me.  U will have 2 take a stand and resist his maneuvers, but I have already given u the power 2 defeat him soundly. Refuse 2 allow his tactics 2 overwhelm u or bring discouragement. It is My will that u obtain and maintain the victory, says the Lord.

Isaiah 54:17 -  No weapon formed against u shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against u in judgment u shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is from Me," Says the LORD.

22NOV - Become Sensitive Again -  Commit 2 live the law of LOVE today.  Criticism of other members in the Body of Christ weakens us.  Criticism of pastors, teachers, evangelists and fellow believers causes the heart 2 become insensitive.  If u have become insensitive, repentance is necessary 2 remove callouses and regain a tender heart.  A devotion 2 the Word and fellowship w/the Father will drive away insensitivity and bring the anointing of the Spirit.  so renew your commitment today 2 stay sensitive and tender hearted 2 obey the Love of God that has been shed abroad in your heart by the Holy Spirit.

Ephesians 4:31-32 - Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from u, w/all malice.  And be kind2 one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God in Christ also forgave u.

23NOV - Refuse 2 allow yourself 2 get weary while standing in faith, in prayer, or in warfare. Seek My face and come into My presence where u can be refreshed and renewed. This is no time 2 get discouraged. Don't give up! You are at the point of a significant breakthrough if u will just continue 2 fight thru the opposition. Be strong and resolute, says the Lord.

Galatians 6:9 - And let us not grow weary while doing good, 4 in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.

23NOV - Obey Him in the Little Things - B4 God will send u out on a major mission, He will give u the opportunity 2 prove u can be trusted w/small Instructions.  God wants 2 know if u will Listen 2 His Voice; bcoz if u do not, the enemy will wipe u out!  Start today obeying the Lord in the little things.  Let Him C that He can trust u out there in a place of much authority.  Let Him know u will be faithful 2 His words and 2 the voice of His Spirit.  Once He knows u will obey Him, He will start sending bigger assignments your way.

Luke 16:10 - "He who is faithful in what is least is faithful also in much; and he who is unjust in what is least is unjust also in much

24NOV - Resist the temptation 2 settle into religious complacency--that place where u are satisfied w/what u already know. I have more 2 teach u. Let Me lead u on an adventure of fresh excitement in obtaining a greater measure of spiritual reality and a closer relationship w/Me, says the Lord. Don't get stuck in a rut; keep seeking; keep moving.

Philippians 3:12 - Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that 4 which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me.

24NOV - Happy Thanksgiving 2 Everyone all over the world!!- Let Your Life Shine - One thing the world needs 2 C is good examples.  When u go after God, do not walk out on the edge.  Go all out in God's direction.  Conduct yourself in such a way that u will put 2 rest any question about whether or not u are a Christian.  Let the people around u C your Love and Faith and Purity in every situation.  Your example will go a lot further than your words.  People where u work or go 2 school might reject or argue w/the words u say.  But they will never 4get your acts of Love.  Always live above reproach and let the Light of Jesus shine brightly thru u.

I Timothy 4:12 - Let no one despise your youth, but be an example 2 the believers, in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity.
25NOV - You live in times of great evil and adversity. Your only place of escape is in Me, says the Lord. U must come and hide yourself in truth and righteousness so that the enemy cannot touch u and nothing can dissuade u from My purposes and your life in Me. This is a deliberate commitment and takes effort 2 maintain, but I will give u the help and strength u need. Don't get caught up in the issues of life and worldly concerns; keep eternal focus.

Psalms 27:5  - For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; In the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock.

25NOV - Stir Up the Power - There may be times u feel dry and that u do not feel u have the inner resources 2 do what God has called u 2 do.  The Word of God gives a clear command how 2 handle those situations in your life:  "Stir up the gift inside u."  Everything u will ever need 2 accomplish what God has called u 2 do has been placed 'inside' u.  LOVE is inside u.  Jesus is inside u!  Pray: "In the Name of Jesus, I stir up the gift that is within me by faith.  I am not going 2 wait until I 'feel' stirred up, I am stepping out in faith and expecting my feeling 2 follow this truth."

2 Timothy 1:4,6-7 - ...greatly desiring 2 C u, being mindful of your tears, that I may be filled w/Joy.  Therefore I remind u 2 stir up the gift of God which is in u thru the laying on of my hands.  For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but, of Power and of Love and of a sound Mind.

26NOV - What's Your Name? - When u made covenant w/Jesus, u gave your old name  away!  Your old name was sin, weakness, fear, poverty, and every evil thing u inherited from Adam.  But when u received Jesus as your Lord and Savior, He took those 'old' names from u and gave u His own in exchange.  His Name will cover any  need u will ever have.  Just think about who u are named after: Jesus, Mighty God, Wisdom, Deliverer, Lion of Judah, Provider, Prince of Peace, Healer, Cornerstone, Resurrection of Life, That Alpha and Omega.  Meditate on the Names of the Lord.  All power and authority are in that Name and His Name has been given 2 u!

Colossians 3:17 - And whatever u do in word or deed, do all in the Name of the LORD Jesus, giving thanks 2 God the Father thru Him.

27NOV- Occupy Till Jesus Comes - The Bible teaches that u are 2 occupy till Jesus comes.  Occupy means 2 hold possession, or control, of conquered troops and territory.  You are going 2 have 2 realize Jesus has already won the victory if u are going 2 'occupy' effectively.  You are not on the defensive anymore.  Satan is!  Put on God's Armor and the devil will run from u just as if u were Jesus.  When he sees u wearing God's Armor and God's helmet w/God's weapons in your hand, he will think he is come face-2-face w/Jesus.  Wear all the Armor u have been given.  Keep the devil on the defensive and occupy till Jesus comes.

Ephesians 6:13-17 - Therefore take up the whole Armor of God, that u may be able 2 withstand in the evil day, and having done all, 2 stand.  Stand therefore, having girded your Waist w/Truth, having put on the Breastplate of Righteousness, and having shod your Feet w/the Preparation of the gospel of Peace; above all, taking the Shield of Faith w/which u will be able 2 quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.  And take The Helmet of Salvation, and the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God; 
28NOV - Imitate the Faithful - Apart from the Word of God itself and prayer, nothing can do more 4 u than watching and imitating a real man of faith.  Listen 2 the Holy Ghost preachers.  Watch them lay hands on the sick.  Watch them move in the gifts of the Spirit.  U never know when God may thrust u forward and it will be your turn 2 lay hands on the sick. Jesus will heal thru u 2.  So find people who are operating in more faith and power than u are and learn from them.  Watch Jesus in them and copy Him!

Hebrews 13:7 - Remember those who rule over u, who have spoken the Word of God 2 u, whose faith follow, considering the outcome of their conduct.

29NOV - I Am w/u and I Am 4 u. I have designed a path b4 u that will lead u forth into the redemptive revelation of My present purposes. And those purposes, My people, will unveil your destiny. In this season u will begin 2 understand Me in a greater way. I will share w/u the hidden manna--the manna that has been set aside 4 this season and 4 this time. As u eat the manna of the revelation of who I Am it will become your present treasure in these days, says the Lord.

29NOV - Recognize that your experiences will be marked by great expectations and great resistance. The great expectations come from your faith 2 receive the promises I have made 2 u. The great resistance is a result of more pressure from the enemy. The choices u make at this time 2 both believe and 2 fight will determine the nature of your spiritual environment. Be diligent 2 walk in the Spirit, says the Lord.

Galatians 5:16 - I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and u shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.

By To Walk in the Spirit of God means:


By David Wilkerson
August 15, 1994

God's purpose 4 every one of His children is that we surrender 2 the reign and rulership of the Holy Spirit:
"If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit" (Galatians 5:25).
In other words, "If He lives in u, let Him direct u!"
In this message, I want 2 show u 2 things:
  1. What it means 2 walk in the Spirit; and
  2. How u can obtain such a walk.
I have not yet fully arrived in this glorious walk -- but I am gaining ground!
I believe Acts 16 is one of the best examples of what it means 2 walk in the Holy Spirit. We've heard this expression all our lives -- 2 "walk in the Spirit" -- but what does it mean?

1. Walking in the Spirit Means
Incredible, Detailed Direction
and Unclouded Decisions!

The Holy Ghost provides absolute, clearly detailed INSTRUCTIONS 2  those who walk in Him. If u walk in the Spirit, then u don't walk in confusion -- your decisions aren't clouded ones.
The early Christians did not walk in confusion. They were led by the Spirit in every DECISION, every move, every action! The Spirit TALKED 2 them and directed them in their every waking hour. No decision was made without consulting Him. The church's motto throughout the New Testament was: "He who has ears 2 hear, let him hear what the Spirit has 2 say!"
You probably have heard preachers and missionaries say, "The need represents the call. Jesus said, 'Go' -- so, go! Go into all the world, preach the gospel and make disciples!"
Beloved, this is only half-true. We are 2 go into all the world w/the gospel. And the call is 2 the entire church. But we are 2 go only when and where the Spirit leads! The idea that we're simply 2 "pack our bags and go" has nothing at all 2 do wwalking in the Spirit.
I am ministering in New York City today bcoz the Holy Ghost told me very clearly: "Go 2 New York City and help raise up a church." And He told me when 2 come. No devil or demon can move me from this -- bcoz the Spirit gave DETAILED INSTRUCTIONS. I remember standing between Broadway and Seventh Avenue, weeping and raising my hands. The Holy Ghost said, "In this very area I am going 2 raise up a church. Obey me, David. Start a church in New York City!" Times Square Church is not just an accident. It is the result of clear, detailed instructions from the Holy Ghost!
The Bible says,
"In the mouth of 2 or 3 witnesses shall every word be established" (2 Corinthians 13:1; Matthew 18:16).
I want 2 give u three witnesses 4 my message: Paul, Silas and Timothy. Each of them was full of the Holy Ghost and walked daily in the Spirit. And in chapter 16 of Acts, these men show us what we can expect in such a walk.
Paul had chosen Silas and Timothy 2 go w/him thru-out the churches, 2 establish them:
"And so were the churches established in the faith, and increased in number daily" (Acts 16:5).
Now, in Paul's day there was no continent more needy than Asia. That land was in total darkness. And, like many zealous ministers today, Paul wanted 2 go where the need was. But the Spirit forbade him 2 preach in Asia on this occasion:
"...they had gone thru-out Phrygia and the region of Galatia, and were forbidden of the Holy Ghost 2 preach the word in Asia..." (verse 6).
They started 2 go, but the Lord said, "No -- u can't go right now!"
Paul said, "Well, let's go 2 Bithynia! The people are in darkness there, and we have been commanded 2 go. So let's go!" But again, the Spirit didn't permit them:
"After they were come 2 Mysia, they assayed 2 go into Bithynia: but the Spirit suffered them not" (verse 7).
No wonder so many missionaries come home from the field after a short time. Many come back disillusioned and despairing bcoz they haven't been led by the Spirit. They went w/zeal -- but w/o seeking the counsel of the Holy Ghost. They were not sent out by  the Holy Ghost!
Paul and his men ended up in Troas, undecided and wondering where 2 go next. That's when Paul received a vision:
"And a vision appeared 2 Paul in the night; There stood a man of Macedonia,
and prayed him, saying, Come over into Macedonia, and help us" (verse 9).
Please note: It's a good thing the Spirit didn't tell Paul the whole story in this vision. You see, the man calling him was a jailkeeper -- beckoning him 2 come spend a night locked in a stockade within the walls of his prison!
Beloved, u also will be tested when u begin 2 walk in the Spirit. Paul surely was, along w/his two young servants. When they arrived in Philippi, a city in Macedonia, they didn't encounter any such man -- only women!
"And on the sabbath we went out of the city by a river side, where prayer was wont 2b made; and we sat down, and spake unto the women which resorted thither. And a certain woman named Lydia, a seller of purple in the city of Thyatira, which worshipped God, heard us: whose heart the Lord opened.... And when she was baptized, and her household, she besought us, saying, If ye have judged me 2b faithful 2 the Lord, come into my house, and abide there. And she constrained us" (verses 13-15).
Can u imagine what Paul must have said 2 his two young associates on the way 2 Lydia's house? "I thought I saw a man calling 4 help. Yet there's nobody around here but women -- not a man in sight! I trust I heard the Lord correctly."
We get upset when God tells us something and it doesn't unfold exactly as we heard it. We want every detail 2 fall into place. And if we don't "C the man" right away, soon we're ready 2 discount everything!
In the meantime, however, God had opened Lydia's heart. A number of women were getting saved, God was moving -- but there wasn't a man in sight! Indeed, God will perform all kinds of wonderful, unexpected miracles on the way 2 the vision -- and on the way of obedience!

Philip and Peter Also Walked in
the Spirit -- And They Got Very
Detailed, Incredible Directions!

God was using Philip powerfully 2 lead a revival in Samaria. People were being saved, healed, delivered from demons. But the Spirit directed Philip 2 leave Samaria -- and 2 go instead 2 the desert of Gaza. So, in obedience, Philip packed it in, said good-bye and started walking 2 his destination.
Along came an Ethiopian eunuch in a chariot, reading the book of Isaiah.
"Then the Spirit said unto Philip, Go near, and join thyself 2 this chariot. And Philip ran thither 2 him..." (Acts 8:29-30).
Suddenly Philip was opening the message of Isaiah 53 to this man, revealing Jesus. And the next thing Philip knew, the man received Christ and was baptized. Then,
"...when they were come up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught away Philip,
that the eunuch saw him no more..." (verse 39).
Many people have a problem w/this last verse: "The Spirit caught away Philip...." But I don't. The Spirit had been present when the heavens and earth were created; He was Co-Creator w/the Father. So He certainly could carry a man 2 his next preaching assignment!
Peter was on the rooftop praying when God showed him a vision. The Lord was teaching him, "Don't call anything unclean that I have said is clean." As this took place, 3 men stood at Peter's gate, calling, "Is Simon Peter in the house?"
The Spirit said 2 Peter,
"Go downstairs -- there are 3 men standing at the gate. They're going 2 ask u 2 go w/them, and u are 2 go. Don't doubt anything -- just go!" (See Acts 10:19-22).
These were absolutely clear, detailed instructions!
Later, in Jerusalem, Peter told the brethren why he ate w/uncircumcised Gentiles:
"And the spirit bade me go w/them, nothing doubting..." (Acts 11:12).
Peter said, "The Spirit told me 2 do it. I ate w/them bcoz the Holy Ghost spoke clearly 2 me!"
The early church never sent out workers or missionaries unless the Holy Ghost chose and ordained them. A person didn't just walk up 2 the apostles and say, "Look, I've got a call 2 Cyprus, 2 Paphos, 2 Perga, 2 Pergamus. Please anoint me, ordain me -- send me forth w/your blessing!"
No -- the Holy Ghost spoke clearly in prayer meetings, appointing those who were truly anointed of God:
"As they ministered 2 the Lord, and fasted, the Holy Ghost said, Separate me Barnabas and Saul 4 the work whereunto I have called them. And when they had fasted and prayed, and laid their hands on them, they sent them away. So they, being sent forth by the Holy Ghost, departed..." (13:2-4).
If u ask the Holy Ghost, He will tell u everything u need 2 know -- including where and when 2 go!
Included in these incredible directions are precise warnings about what is coming. The Holy Spirit will warn u in order 2 prepare u:
"Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, He will guide u into all truth: 4 he shall not speak of Himself; but whatsoever He shall hear, that shall He speak: and He will shew u things 2 come" (John 16:13).
Jesus isn't talking merely about prophecy and future events. He's talking about your life! Walking in the Holy Ghost is about being led by Him in very practical, daily living. For example, He showed the early church a famine was coming:
"And there stood up one of them named Agabus, and signified by the spirit that there should be great dearth thru-out all the world: which came 2 pass in the days of Claudius Caesar. Then the disciples, every man according 2 his ability, determined 2 send relief unto the brethren which dwelt in Judea" (Acts 11:28).
The Holy Spirit warned them a famine was coming -- so they began 2 take offerings 2 share w/other believers!
The Spirit also warned Paul that his trip 2 Jerusalem would result in his being taken prisoner:
"...there came down from Judea a certain prophet, named Agabus. And when he was come unto us, he took Paul's girdle, and bound his own hands and feet, and said, Thus saith the Holy Ghost, So shall the Jews at Jerusalem bind the man that owneth this girdle, and shall deliver him into the hands of the Gentiles" (21:10-11).
Paul was being warned -- told 2 prepare! The Holy Spirit always warns us!

2. Walking in the Spirit Means Never
Being Intimidated by Demonic Harassment!

If u walk in the Spirit, u will constantly be harassed by demonic powers. But u do not have 2b intimidated by any demon power -- anywhere, at any time!
Paul was continually harassed by demonic powers. He was preaching 2 Sergius Paulus, deputy of the isle of Paphos, when demons attempted 2 interfere:
"...a false prophet, a Jew, whose name was Barjesus... withstood them, seeking 2 turn away the deputy from the faith" (Acts 13:6-8).
Barjesus means "son of Jesus" or "angel of light." This was the devil standing up against Paul! But the Holy Ghost welled up inside the apostle:
"Then Saul...filled w/the Holy Ghost...said ...thou child of the devil, thou enemy of all righteousness, wilt thou not cease 2 pervert the right ways of the Lord? And now, behold, the hand of the Lord is upon thee, and thou shalt be blind, not seeing the sun 4 a season. And immediately there fell on him a mist and a darkness; and he went about seeking some 2 lead him by the hand. Then the deputy, when he saw what was done, believed, being astonished at the doctrine of the Lord" (verses 9-12).
Paul, "filled w/the Holy Ghost," brought down all the powers of darkness!
In Acts 16, the devil again came against the ministry of the Holy Ghost -- and again Paul responded:
"And it came 2 pass, as we went 2 prayer, a certain damsel possessed w/a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying: The same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants of the most high God, which shew unto us the way of salvation. And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned and said 2 the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ 2 come out of her. And he came out the same hour" (16:16-18).
I want 2 stop here and challenge every Christian who claims 2 walk in the Spirit: It is not enough 2 "be grieved" by the attempts of Satan 2 harass you! Paul was grieved -- meaning "disturbed, troubled." And he allowed it 4 many days. But how long should u put up w/Satan's troubling u -- putting unnecessary grief on u, hindering u in your work?
This could have gone on w/Paul 4 a long time. It might have affected his physical body. But the Spirit of God welled up in Paul, and he said, "That's it -- that's enough! In the name of Jesus, be gone!"
Beloved, we take too much from the devil! There comes a time when we've got 2 stand up in the power of the Holy Ghost and say, "Enough -- that's it! I command u in Jesus' name 2 go!"

3. Walking in the Spirit Means
Being Worry-Free -- No Matter
What Happens to You!

When you take authority and command devils to flee, Satan will come at you with everything in his arsenal. He'll bring down all kinds of trouble and crises on you!
Just after Paul had cast the demons out of the possessed girl, Satan started stirring things up. He enflamed the crowd against Paul and Silas -- and suddenly they were in a terrible crisis!
The city magistrates had them whipped and cast into prison. And with every stripe on their backs, I can hear the devil saying, "So you think you've won the victory? You think you're going to cast out my demons and take authority over me? Take that! I'm going to beat you, cast you into prison, lock you up hands and feet. Then let me see how much you praise the Lord!"
The devil didn't seem to know: The more you whip a servant of God who walks in the Spirit, the more praises you whip up from him! If you throw him in a crisis, tie him up with problems and troubles, he'll sing, shout and worship!
"And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them" (Acts 16:25).
If we are to walk in the Spirit, then we must believe God for supernatural deliverance from every bondage of Satan. It doesn't matter if God has to create an earthquake to do it. In fact, that is exactly what he did for Paul:
"And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one's bands were loosed" (verse 26).
Satan will try to bring upon you the most dreadful temptation or trial you have ever faced. He wants you to get bogged down in guilt, condemnation, self-examination. Dear saint, you have to arise in the Spirit and get your eyes off your circumstances and bondage. Don't try to figure it all out. Start praising, singing, trusting God -- and He will take care of your deliverance!

4. Walking in the Spirit Means
Never Again Fearing Man!

When the magistrates ordered Paul and Silas out of jail, Paul refused to leave. He said,
"They have beaten us openly uncondemned, being Romans, and have cast us into prison; and now do they thrust us out...? nay verily; but let them come themselves and fetch us out" (Acts 16:37).
God does not want you to sneak away from men who have been the devil's tool to harass you. He wants you to experience deliverance with your head held high. He wants to prepare a table for you in the presence of your enemies!
"Let them come themselves and fetch us out!" This was not Paul's pride speaking. It was the Holy Spirit in him, saying, "Those who walk in the Spirit don't fear men. And the shame they tried to put on you is going to come down on their own head!"
God, give us Paul's holy boldness! We know we are more than conquerors through Christ who strengthens us. Let the devil and his people be put to shame. But those who walk with God will never be put to shame!
Now, for the second part of my message:

How Can You Obtain Such a
Walk in the Spirit?

The command to walk in the Spirit is given to all -- not just to a few super-saints! Here is how you can obtain this walk:
  1. You must go after this walk with everything in you! First, ask the Holy Spirit to be your guide and friend: "...Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you" (Luke 11:9-13).
    If you are saved, then the Holy Spirit has already been given to you. Now ask Him to take over -- surrender to Him! You have to determine in your heart that you want Him to lead and guide you. Moses, speaking of the latter days, said,
    "But if from thence thou shalt seek the Lord thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul" (Deuteronomy 4:29).
    "...he made thee to hear his voice, that he might instruct thee..." (verse 36).
  2. Focus on knowing and hearing the Spirit -- and get your eyes off your trouble and temptation. Paul, Silas and Timothy would have wallowed in fear and depression if they had focused on their troubles. Instead, they focused on God -- praising and worshiping Him! Most of the time when we go to prayer, we focus on past failures. We replay our defeats time after time, saying, "Oh, how far up the road I could be if I hadn't failed God and messed up in my past!"
    Beloved, you've got to forget everything in your past! It's all under the blood -- and worrying about it is a waste of time. So forget yesterday -- forget even the last hour. And forget about the future too, because only the Lord knows what's ahead. Instead, focus only on the Holy Spirit, with your whole mind and heart. Give yourself completely to loving Him!
  3. Give much quality time to communion with the Holy Spirit. He will not speak to anyone who is in a hurry. All of God's Word is about waiting on Him!
When in prayer, you dare not think the first thing that comes to mind is the voice of the Spirit. No, your flesh and the devil know your desire to hear His voice -- and they will rush in and inject words that are not right!
Wait patiently. Seek the Lord and minister praises to Him. Take authority over every other voice that whispers thoughts to you. Believe that the Spirit is greater than these, and that He will not let you be deceived or blind. Be willing to set your heart on Him as Jacob did -- and not let go until He blesses you!

Now, Let Me Show You a Higher
Meaning of Walking in the Spirit!

I thank God for all the things I've described about walking in the Spirit: incredibly detailed direction, power over demonic interference, worry-free dependence on the Lord, freedom from fearing men. But each of these blessings should be only a by-product of a higher walk in the Spirit. I believe the highest form of walking in the Spirit goes beyond all these things!
Our example is found in 1 Samuel 9. In this chapter, Saul was sent by his father to find some runaway donkeys. Taking a servant with him, Saul searched throughout the lands of Ephraim, Shalim, Benjamin and Zuph. Finally, he got discouraged and was ready to give up the hunt. But then his servant told him about Samuel, a seer; maybe he could tell him where to find the donkeys.
On this occasion, I see Saul as a type of believer who seeks direction only. All he had in mind was: "Where are my donkeys? Where should I go? I'm at my wits' end!"
Meanwhile, God had already told Samuel a young man was going to come to him, and that he was to anoint him. Samuel here is a type of the Holy Spirit, who knows the mind of God; he has more on his mind than just direction. He knows Saul has been chosen by God to play a part in heaven's eternal purposes!
The first thing Samuel did when Saul arrived was to call for a feast:
"...go up before me unto the high place; for ye shall eat with me to day, and to morrow I will let thee go, and will tell thee all that is in thine heart" (1 Samuel 9:19).
This is exactly what the Holy Spirit desires of us: to sit at the Lord's table and minister to Him -- having quality time alone, hearing His heart.
Samuel asked Saul to clear his mind so they could commune together:
"And as for thine asses that were lost three days ago, set not thy mind on them; for they are found..." (verse 20).
Samuel was saying, "Don't focus on getting direction now -- that's all settled. There's something more important at hand. You've got to know God's heart -- His eternal purposes!"
Samuel laid a whole shoulder of meat before Saul, and they spent time communing: "And...Samuel communed with Saul upon the top of the house" (verse 25). After that night of communion, Samuel asked Saul to send his servant out of the room, so they could have an intimate, face-to-face session:
"...Bid the servant pass on before us... but stand thou still a while, that I may shew thee the word of God. Then Samuel took a vial of oil, and poured it upon his head, and kissed him, and said, Is it not because the Lord hath anointed thee to be captain over his inheritance?" (9:27; 10:1).
Do you see what God is saying here? "If you really want to walk in the Spirit -- if you really want My anointing -- you need to seek more than direction from Me. You need to come into My presence and get to know My heart, My desires! You see, I want to anoint you -- to use you in My kingdom!"
Beloved, forget direction -- forget everything else for now! Allow the Holy Spirit to teach you the deep, hidden things of God. Stand still in His presence, and let Him show you the very heart of the Lord. That is the walk of the Spirit in its highest form!
When you do this, direction will come -- and you won't even have to ask! As Saul was leaving, Samuel said,
"By the way -- go to Rachel's sepulchre and you'll get the information you need about your donkeys" (see 10:2).
Then Saul received some of the most incredibly detailed instructions in all of God's Word!
God has a precious oil of anointing He wants to pour on you. He wants you to come out of His presence with the aroma of His anointing on you. And as you're leaving, He will whisper "Oh, by the way -- here's what you wanted to know...." He promises:
"And the Lord shall cause his glorious voice to be heard...." (Isaiah 30:30).
Do u want 2 walk in the Spirit? Then set your heart 2 seek Him today. You will learn 2 know His voice -- w/clear, detailed directions.

29NOV - Beloved, C 2 it that u are not harboring any offenses or bitterness in your heart so that there are no divisions among u. Division will hinder your walk w/ Me and keep u stuck in the flesh instead of walking in the Spirit.  U need 2b free, but u cannot attain that liberty until u truly forgive and release others. Don't let another day go by allowing this judgment 2 stand, says the Lord.

1 Corinthians 3:3  - ...4 u are still carnal. For where there are envy, strife, and divisions among u, are u not carnal and behaving like mere men?

29NOV - Do Not Buy A Lie - Go 2 the Word of God and get the issue of prosperity straight.  Find out once and 4 all which is the blessing and which is the curse.  Deuteronomy 28:1-14 is the Blessing--Prosperity.  In verses 15-31, God describes Poverty and He has called it a curse.  The Curse is meant 2 destroy, not 2 teach a lesson, not 2 make u more spiritual.  A Curse destroys.  Do not believe satan's lies.  He wants u 2 believe Poverty is a Blessing in disguise.  Remember, u have been delivered from the curse.  Do not buy the lie!

Deuteronomy 28:2 - "And all these Blessings shall come upon u and overtake u, bcoz u obey the Voice of the Lord your God..
30NOV - Be free of all bondage and keep your heart pure b4 Me, says the Lord. Then, u will be able 2  discern spiritually. However, anything that creates darkness in your soul will cause u 2 dump down in the flesh and will cloud your spiritual perceptions. Be on guard, 4 this is a time when seductions 2 choose flesh over Spirit are rampant. [During relaxed Holiday seasons]; Obtain and maintain purity.

Psalms 51:10 Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.

30NOV - Abide in The Word - Make a quality decision 2 abide in the Word today.  Allow the Word 2 make a 'Home' in u.  Spent time w/it, meditate on it, fill your mind and mouth w/it and let it guide your every actionU will be able 2 'hear' the Word in u when u are abiding in it as u should.  Just as u sing a beautiful song over and over in your mind, the Word will begin 2 come forth in u.  A Scripture down inside u will rise up and u will know God's answer 4 your situation.  Be obedient 2 the Word He brings forth 2 u today.  As u abide in the Word, the Word will abide in u!

John 15:7 - "If u abide in Me, and My words abide in u, u will ask what u desire, and it shall be done 4 u.

Praise God 4 another month of encouragement! Thank you Jesus 4 being our HOPE and the place 2 turn 2 4 HELP in time of need. Bless everyone! In Jesus Name, Amen!
